Sightsavers Reports

TT Tracker app aims to improve surgical outcomes and patient care

Trichiasis (TT) operations are generally conducted in remote and resource-poor settings, which can make it difficult to follow-up and assess surgical outcomes. In response, Sightsavers developed an Android-based mobile phone application, called the TT Tracker, which helps surgeons, assistants and supervisors to collect and analyse information about surgical outcomes and performance, and to determine when and where follow-up appointments are required. All national trachoma programmes are eligible to use the TT Tracker to support elimination activities. As more countries show positive results using the TT Tracker, there is potential to apply it to other surgical eye interventions or other neglected tropical diseases.
